A Person of Character

Posted Thursday, June 4, 2009, at 7:20 AM

As I sat watching the unveiling of the Ronald Reagan statue, I am reminded of the true character of a President. I was too young and busy making ends meet to appreciate him at the time. But since then, I learned so much about this great man. He said to everyone, "We have every right to dream and to dream heroic dreams" He was guided by morals and the goodness of the American people. He never wavered from that belief. He fought the good fight with a quiet pride and humility. Matter of fact, he couldn't hear great things about himself and always downplayed the compliments. When he left office in 1989, America's economy was in a boom. He strengthened our military! He showed wisdom and restored our confidence in what we could do as a nation. He was the symbol of Character. "Let us be shy no longer, go to our strength and tell the world that a new age is not only possible but probable." Reagan celebrated "a people who are free to determine their own destiny." He served to honor others and not himself.

What is the character of our current President? I remember the biggest signs of his character in the year before the election. While Obama was running a campaign, he kept his Muslim roots tied up in a back closet for fear that it would lose him the election. The advisors felt that it was understandable (to compromise and deny his roots) considering the widespread emotions against Muslims since 911 and multiple terrorist attacks. We've all heard the angry words from Islam that basically say that Christians and Jews were so evil that it was the duty of the Muslim people to "wipe them from the face of the earth". Of course, that is not the true beliefs of Muslims but the hatred of extremist. Most people realize that there are really faithful and really evil in all religions. However, my education in the Bible tells me that it has been stated many times that people will be turning their backs on God and openly denying their faith. Obama did just that. He used God to keep his appearance, Christ-like.

He was portrayed as a committed Christian who went to church. He used that regular church-goer plan until his pastor was caught making anti-something or another-comments in his sermons. Then Obama distanced himself from his church as well. Instead, we heard comments like, "guilt by association" and "You can't hold him responsible for this" or "You can't hold Obama accountable." Well, he chose that church! He chose to sit in that pew Sunday after Sunday while the pastor screamed out inflammatory hatred against white-America. He gave $22,500 to a church that he was not a believer? He was an innocent by-stander? Who donates money and attends a church for 20 years and not believe in what the leader preaches?

His Muslim father and Muslim family connections were buried during the run for the White House. When the Boston Globe and Newsweek brought up his father's roots, Obama kept truth under wraps and had his people proclaim on his "Fight the Smears" website... "When people fabricate stories about someone's faith to denigrate them politically, that's an attack on people of all faiths." Matter-of-fact, showing his true integrity, he outright lied and denied about his Muslim roots.

Case in point: ABC News' Jake Tapper and Sunlen Miller reported:

"The candidate's comment at a Boca Raton, Florida, town hall meeting on May 22, 2008, was typical: "My father was basically agnostic, as far as I can tell, and I didn't know him," he said.

In September 2008, candidate Obama told a Pennsylvania crowd, "I know that I'm not your typical presidential candidate and I just want to be honest with you. I know that the temptation is to say, 'You know what? The guy hasn't been there that long in Washington. You know, he's got a funny name. You know, we're not sure about him.' And that's what the Republicans when they say this isn't about issues, it's about personalities, what they're really saying is, 'We're going to try to scare people about Barack. So we're going to say that, you know, maybe he's got Muslim connections.'...Just making stuff up."

Making stuff up??? That is what he said! Yet, here we are reading about Obama's Muslim roots and how he has lived in many Muslim countries during his childhood so this gives him a unique ability to compromise with them.

Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said in the White House during a conference call: "the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he was able to -- or before he's been able to visit, really, the heart of the Islamic world -- you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father -- obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago."

And Obama's own words: "Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim majority country. I know, because I am one of them."

I will make a strong point right now in this blog. I am not anti-Muslim. I do not have anything against the true Muslim faith. That is not the purpose of my writing this. My point is to show another example of Obama's character. This man denied his own father's faith; accused others of "making stuff up" in connecting him with the Muslim faith; used Christianity to make himself seem righteous yet denied his own connection to that church and the pastor when things got tough. This committed Christian who attended Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years, suddenly was not a follower of Rev Jeremiah Wright. Obama stated that the Rev Wright was like an old uncle that always makes silly comments. This pastor preached to our future president countless sermons filled with Anti-American comments. It is all public for anyone to listen to. An ABC News reporter reviewed dozens of Rev. Wright's sermons, offered for sale by the church, and found repeated denunciations of the U.S. Obama's own aides were quoted saying that Rev Wright's comments were ""inflammatory rhetoric" Yet, Obama and Michelle were married by this pastor. His daughters were baptized by this reverend as well. And even more interesting is that Obama credited his book, "The Audacity of Hope" to this "old Uncle". So exactly how do we respect a leader who turns his back on people the moment a connection to him turns wrong? How do we trust a man who denies his church? And now anyone can see that he denied truth and lied to cover the very Muslim faith that he is now embracing as the President. (Time 6:20am)

Ronald Reagan has more character than Barack Obama... whatever!

Reagonomics = Give the rich more money, then they'll eventually hire some poor people to carry it around.

Reagan has many faults...

1) Treason: As a private citizen, and BEFORE the election, in contravention of both law and tradition, Reagan's minions and handlers illegally negotiated with the Iranians to induce them hold the American Embassy hostages until after the elections,to embarrass President Carer and to prevent his successful negotiation of an "October Surprise." Sent future VP George Bush, Sr., and future CIA chief William Casey to Paris to negotiate the deal.

2) Sent arms, including chemical weapons, to both Iraq and Iran during the decade-long Iran-Iraq war, making those two countries the two biggest US arms trading partners at precisely the time when it was illegal to trade with either due to both US and UN laws.

3) Iran/Contra: Used drug traffickers to transport illegal arms to Nicaragua, ignoring the contraband which was brought back on the return trip, creating a massive and immediate increase in cocaine trade in urban California. Illegally used the CIA to mine harbors and ferry Contra troops in Nicaragua. Eventually, several administration staffers were convicted of crimes ranging from lying to Congress to conspiracy to defraud the U.S. The scandal involved the administration selling arms to Iran and using proceeds from the sales to fund a guerrilla insurgent group in Nicaragua

4) Created alQaeda in Afghanistan to oppose the Soviet puppet/occupation there

5) Sponsored right-wing, State terrorism in El Salvador, Honduras, Haiti, and Guatemala against indigenous insurgents who were fighting the dictatorial, hereditary regimes there. Illegally invaded and occupied Grenada, overthrowing the democratically elected President

6) Lied about ALL of this activity before Congress, and suborned his Secretary of Defense to perjury, as well.

7) Rescinded Carter policy that all US international financial support be based upon valid human rights records.

8) Took the world to the brink of nuclear war, putting nuclear weapons into Europe, violating the very provision that was the settlement to the Cuban missile crisis.

9) Instituted the so-called "Mexico City" doctrine, effectively barring recipients of U.S. foreign aid from promoting abortion as a method of family planning.

10) Instigated trickle-down/voodoo economics, which was the beginning of what has recently culminated in the crash of the bubbles. Here is a subset of his regime's economic sins:

a) Within the first year of the policy, we were in a depression caused in large measure by the policy. The "historic" 27% tax-cut was skewed two to one in favor of those making over $200,000 per year, in percentages, and far more in real dollars. By the end of the second year, increases in state and local taxes more than replaced the cuts for the middle class.

b) Wages throughout Reagan/Bush remained stagnant in real dollars for the next 12 years, the longest and worst growth performance in middle class wages in US history. Average national growth was the lowest since the early 30s.

c) Conspired with corpoRat and congressional allies to sustain spending by loosening credit, to replace the wages they were not going to increase.

d) Named Ayn Rand acolyte and free-market apostle Alan Greenspan as Chief of the Federal Reserve.

11) The HUD/DoI Scandals: Samuel Pierce and his associates were found to have rewarded wealthy contributors to the administration's campaign with funding for low income housing development without the customary background checks, and lobbyists, such as former Secretary of the Interior James G. Watt, were rewarded with huge lobbying fees for assisting campaign contributors with receiving government loans and guarantees. Sixteen convictions were eventually handed down, including several members of the Reagan administration.

12) Appointed some of the "worst" Federalist Society/strict constructionists to the federal bench, including Scalia, Kennedy, and O'Connor, ALL of whose votes were crucial in (illegally) installing GW Bush in the presidency in 2000, and named Rehnquist Chief Justice.

13) Ordered the revocation of the FCC regulation called "the Fairness Doctrine," and opened up the Press to the rash of consolidations which has led, now, to a compromised, toothless, stenographic, lap-dog "Fourth Estate."

14) Initiated the attack on labor unions by attacking PATCO, the Air Traffic Controllers union, creating a crisis in airport control towers nation-wide, and importantly, started the slow erosion of US worker wages and benefits.

15) Through the appointment of James Watt, who claimed that the environment was "expendable" since the "second coming of Christ was at hand,", Reagan reduced clean water and air standards, reduced labor, mine, and industrial safety standards,and cut funding to supervisory and regulatory agencies charged with monitoring those industries.

16) Increased the defense budget to 240% previous levels.

17) Systematically ignored the beginning of the AIDS/HIV epidemic, blaming the victims publically.

18)The S&L collapse: Reagan's "elimination of loopholes" in the tax code included the elimination of the "passive loss" provisions that subsidized rental housing. Because this was removed retroactively, it bankrupted many real estate developments made with this tax break as a premise. This with some other "deregulation" policies ultimately led to the largest political and financial scandal in U.S. history: The Savings and Loan crisis. The ultimate cost of the crisis is estimated to have totaled around USD$150 billion, about $125 billion of which was consequently and directly subsidized by the U.S. government, which contributed to the large budget deficits of the early 1990s.

19) Called ketchup a vegetable for the purposes of school-lunch funding and reduced early education and head-start funding.

20) Symbolically ripped the solar panels, installed by Pres. Carter, from the WhiteHouse,and blamed trees for causing air pollution.

At least old Ron did not lie about who he was and where he came from and who his friends were. That is more than I can say for Obama. I am starting to believe that there is NO truth in anything the man says. Being a member of a church for 20 years where the leader is a racist really says it all. There should be an IQ test before people are allowed to vote.

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Thu, Jun 4, 2009, at 9:57 PM

In 1989 he left office with the highest approval rating of any president since Franklin Roosevelt.

Yes, Reagan had issues against him just as every President did. All in all, he was considered one of the greatest Presidents ever.

Now my observations about Obama's character was dead on, ain't no denying it examples of his dishonest character. Everything he does showes that he is in this for the power. Of course, it is also my opinion and I wrote how I came to it. Thanks for reading.

WOW Censored...definately think you stepped over the line there. First off by being crude to a VETERAN..someone who has actually been at the pointy end of the spear just so you can make derogatory comments like that. Second of all, RR was NEVER impeached, was NEVER convicted of ANY crime nor was he ever charged. Questioned yes, but never convivted of any crime. Unlike Mr. Bill who was quite nearly impeached and mark my words, so will Obama when all that he's doing behind our backs comes out into the light. RR did more good for this country than ALL of the democrat presidents going back to FDR. He stood up to the bad guys, looked them in the eye and shut them down. Wanna talk Taliban, ok, let's talk Mogadishu. Let's talk about why a president sent men into harms way, then pulled out because we lost a few soldiers. He should have sent MORE into the god forsaken place and wiped out the warlords and paved the way for democracy. Yet today that country has no goverment and that is one of the biggest reasons we have ships hit by pirates everyday. Remember we had NO issues with the Taliban until they became sponsors of terrists and allowed people like Bin Laden to use their country as a safe haven. THEN we had to do something.

I could go on but I have a JOB that calls to me. I guess it's my duty to work to help pay for all the parasites that suck "free" tax money off the hard working folk. Have a great day censored.

censored

In my opinion - you are trash. Trashy writing, trashy mouth. Get a job. Acutally, maybe not. You need to live on the dole and get no more, no less than anyone else on the dole. Don't want you getting anything from the "lazy fat cats".

I want you to try and live without anything produced in companies that are owned by "lazy fat cats".

PLEASE, whatever you do, Do Not work for anyone. Do it on your own. See how far your lazy butt gets.

Mike, your fan club still loves you! I know who I can trust when it all goes down the drain (more). You take care and keep up the good work. Hope you feel better soon...ALOE and a lot of it. Be well and my best to the other 1/2!

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Fri, Jun 5, 2009, at 6:56 PM

Yep! I would have to say that Ronald Reagan has been the best U.S. President during the coarse of lifetime. So far.....but I'm still relatively young, so who knows?

I met him and his wife Nancy at the Boise airport once way back in the 70's when he was running for the Republican nomination against President Ford. At the time I was a long haired, maggot infested, FM type. Belay that last, and make it AM type because music wasn't as segmented as it is today, FM hadn't really taken off yet, so KFXD 630 on your AM dial was still the rock for most Southern Idaho teens.

Anyway the meeting was not grand or anything like that. I was just encouraged by a co-worker to go check out this Reagan guy...so I did. I forget as to which gate at the airport he arrived. But I do remember that at that time it was an actual chain link gate. I was just one of many along a fence line. But they both took the time to shake my hand with and to say hello. So I started to check him out further and listened to what he had to say. At a the time where I could have gone either way, this man and this man alone pretty much changed my life. I cast my very first vote for President for Ronald Reagan. In fact, I voted for him three times after that. To heck with the XXII Amendment.

Of coarse Reagan lost the nomination to President Ford which led to the worst U.S. President of my lifetime (Sooo far....) Jimmie Carter.

As luck would have it, I happened to be at President Reagan's last official campaign stop at a shopping mall parking lot in San Diego. And as luck would further have it I was fortunate to be outside of the convention center in D.C. for his second inauguration. Man it was cold on that day.

These are his words from his first inaugural address.

-- Posted by Beau on Sat, Jun 6, 2009, at 5:16 AM

Beau, as always, great post. AM? Man did you date yourself with that one!

Mike, great post also. Are you doing better? So...I guess this is not the change that you believe in? You do not like the US being sold off one company at a time? You do not like to see job loss, daily, in 5 digits? You do not take comfort that soon our vehicles will all be made in Korea or China and sent to the US to be purchased by us, the taxpayers that bailed these same folks out? You do not like the idea that your children will soon have to move closer to a border so that they can get to work...in the only places where there will be jobs? Oh, and I guess you really did not want all of that money to go to the likes of AIG, GM, WAMU/Chase, etc. so that they could pocket the money and still FIRE record numbers of people? And this one is the best---bowing to a leader of another land and telling people how sorry he (Obama) is for the way Americans are. So, this is not the change you had in mind there huh Mike? How about this Muslim issue? This all kind of makes my head hurt and makes me glad I did not vote for someone who has such a dislike for his own people (hint...Americans) that is if he would ever prove where he is really from. Yep, change we can ALL believe in. I am sure Hitler said something like that as well before he rounded up the less than perfect people into rail cars and sent them to gas filled rooms or starved them to death. Yep, change at the hands of yet another "gifted" speaker who looks good in a suit/uniform. There should really be a test before a person is allowed to vote.

What will be left when it is all done?

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Sat, Jun 6, 2009, at 12:54 PM

"MHN,

Bravo and thank you for removing the foul commments made by censored!"

"censored, You are a one foul SOB!"

"censored In my opinion - you are trash."

And the difference is???????

My point being, everyone has there own way of expressing dismay towards someone else. Granted, censored's POV was a little crass, but who are any of you to criticize when you post the same, more or less?

-- Posted by MrMister on Sun, Jun 7, 2009, at 12:05 AM

Do not even waste the time on MM. He likes to hunt wolf when he is not on here being arrogant and better than the rest of us. Pay him no attention and do not waste the key strokes or time on him. Sooner or later he goes back to the other blog to hunt the wolf...let him stay there. I am surprised he can even form a paragraph without bad words.

-- Posted by OpinionMissy on Sun, Jun 7, 2009, at 12:11 PM

Bazookaman,

If you look in the past, you'll see that I have been here for over a year; and you'll also see that I do NOT favor the liberals you speak of when you state "And we'll give your President all the respect you guys gave OURS."

Please do not categorize me as a liberal!

Secondly,

My comment was regarding the difference between what Censored wrote and what other's wrote.

i.e....

"censored, You are a one foul SOB!"

"In my opinion - you are trash."

As I said, although Censored's comment was crass, I was referring to the comments stated about him/his comments towards others. I mentioned nothing about the content of the blogs; they are informative.

And OM,

"Do not even waste the time on MM. He likes to hunt wolf when he is not on here being arrogant and better than the rest of us. Pay him no attention and do not waste the key strokes or time on him. Sooner or later he goes back to the other blog to hunt the wolf...let him stay there. I am surprised he can even form a paragraph without bad words."

Meaning, do not waste your time on someone that has another opinion. And the arrogant thing again, what's up with that? Because I have an opinion I'm arrogant? You take the cake on that one, big girl. And I'm surprised you can even form a paragraph without belittling someone (or can you?) Twit.

Why don't you try and gather suppport for yourself by dismissing what those who disagree with you have to say? Oh wait, you've already done that...twit.

It hurts your feelings that someone else out here has an opinion, doesn't it?

Kim,

Sorry for taking space on your blog but I won't just sit back when someone attacks.

-- Posted by MrMister on Sun, Jun 7, 2009, at 6:37 PM

Zookaman,

I was by no means defending him. I was just trying to highlight the irony of remarks.

And yah,

I agree with you about the border situation. My philosophy has always been--Build a wall around the U.S.A., with the following posted at regular intervals--(expletive) with us if you will!

No hard feelings...

-- Posted by MrMister on Mon, Jun 8, 2009, at 12:53 AM

I dont give Reagan a ton of credit but I can see his logic on some issues. The air traffic controllers union was unrealistic in their demands. Unions have a way of not representing the greater good. I have been in one and they are overrated. They are a business and so take actions that insure its financial well-being. Their well-being does not always help the individual members.

Alan Greenspan did a fabulous job and I challenge anyone to show how he did not. Reagan needed someone who could make the tough decisions and still communicate that to the public. Being able to speak in plain English does not mean that the man did not know his economics.

Reagan had very little to do with Gorbachev and his eventual actions. Reagan standing up to him meant nothing. Read his biography and one will know better. A small note from his high banker in Russia telling him that they were on the brink of bankruptcy was the primary motive for change. Their being so broke meant that the once mighty Russian military was falling into disrepair. Salaries were not being paid and machines not fixed. This was the true reason for glasnost not Reagan being the take-no-crap leader.

He was a good president and did what he could. Like all politicians, he did what he could and politicized the rest.

-- Posted by twilcox1978 on Mon, Jun 8, 2009, at 2:38 PM

CJW,

I am well aware of the meaning of the comment. As I've stated, although Censored's comment was crass, I was referring to the comments stated about him/his comments towards others. There's a little irony here, that was my point.

And no, I don't have children, but if I did, I wouldn't want them to be taught a lot of the behavior on the BB, including, yes, my behavior at times also.

-- Posted by MrMister on Mon, Jun 8, 2009, at 4:11 PM

Bazookaman, thanks for your comments. As usual, you focus on the hard truth. There will never be a President like Reagan. His across the board support from all parties was monumental and probably will never happen again. Sadly, those who support Obama, (63% approval rate)are sheep! It is so sad that those who voted for him and have even voiced their opposition to alot of what he has done these past four months will continue to praise his virtues. It is almost as if they have no choice but to grin and bear it because to oppose him now, though it is the smart thing to do, wouldn't be advisable. If you oppose anything that this man does you are obviously a rascist. No sound reasoning will suffice. The man is the first black president! The media will tiptoe around the evidence of his incompetence and report on the status of his dog before they will admit to his faults. Fortunately, we still live in a free country and those of us who openly oppose him, can still enjoy our right of free speech, at least for now. I can only hope that we will stand firm until a time when we may be able to boot the current government and re-establish our forefather's nation. We are still the people and do believe that our government should be working for the people and laws should be made by the people. We, the people, do still believe, that in order to bring back a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, might have to ordain and re-establish our Constitution for the United States of America.

Twil, there will be MORE consequences as we roll right along this track. Some things take time to ferment. Now we have another foreign power in charge of one of our companies. Reading the news Fiat plans on building smaller more environmentally friendly cars. Apparently they can't read english when companies like Toyota admit cars like the Prius have nearly dropped off the map what with lower gas prices. Ahhh now I understand...gas prices go up and Toyota sells small cars. Now I understand why we are witholding supply to drive up demand..hmmmm

-- Posted by mhbouncer on Wed, Jun 10, 2009, at 12:32 PM

MHBouncer, good points. This fallacy that Obama is some power-hungry fascist is garbage. That's my point. He may have other misgivings and all that jazz but he is not Mussolini or Caecescu. Certain individuals here like to dress things with superlatives and exaggerate things...

Fiat (errr.. GM) is going to have issues dealing with UAW or whatever form it takes in the future and American stockholders who tend to take a short term view. Americans like excess and will not deal well with a car that is fuel efficient but slow. Lowering our demands is common sense but few are going to do it without the economy forcing change.

-- Posted by Beau on Thu, Jun 11, 2009, at 1:26 AM

bazookaman,

With all due respect, I don't think that my radio equipment can pick up the same ultra low frequencies as yours apparently can.

-- Posted by Beau on Fri, Jun 12, 2009, at 1:50 AM

Bazooka, there is no "fairness" in the fairness doctrine. It's being used as a way to sew the mouths shut of those who speak up against the government. It's being used as a tool to quiet those who oppose the criminal acts taking place. If they get their way will the leftists let Hannity or O'Reilly have air time on NPR? MSNBC? CNN? You'd be out of your mind to believe THAT would happen. How about getting O'Reilly a seat on the View? Now that would something to set the DVR for.

-- Posted by mhbouncer on Fri, Jun 12, 2009, at 4:58 PM

I believe he was on "the view" last year, around October.

-- Posted by MrMister on Fri, Jun 12, 2009, at 10:09 PM

Politicians on both sides of the fence are remarkably cowardly. Bush would not talk on a show when it was hostile territory. Politicians are in the business of looking good for their supporters. Why would they risk getting caught in a lie so that some whack-job radio host with little scientific knowledge of the issues can slam them. This is not just some excuse for the left because those on the right are equally gutless.

-- Posted by twilcox1978 on Sat, Jun 13, 2009, at 1:12 AM

Why I do neleive you are right Mr. and from what remember he probably won't be on again any time soon. I was refering to him being a permanent host there.

As for the 4 detainees (terrorists). We took them to a territory of a soveign nation without their permission. Bermuda is a protectorat just as Puerto Rico is for us. If Breat Britain had dropped off 4 terroists in PR I'm pretty sure we would have them up by the short hairs. ALthough thinking about it, Obabma would probably bring them to the US so we can house and feed them with tax payer money so they won't kill any of us any more.

You know if that's the case, let's just let all the people in death row in this country go. Set them up in a house, give them welfare. At least these people are citizens and only killed a couple people each. None of these guys (and gals) professed to wanting the whole United States wiped off the planet. Think of the BILLIONS we would save by doing this. Wouldn't need all those security guards and prisons. Nope..wait..I'm wrong..we would need them for all the people picked up with a joint as their 3rd strike.

Come on now, if Obama was a power hungry fascist he would shut down this channel and all others. Fear mongering and exaggerating are signs that you cant back what you say up logically. It is simple psychology, those who try to conjure fear usually have some other agenda other than just informing the public. Hitler and Mussolini did not rule in countries that were as strong economically as ours. Those nations were recovering from the devastation of WWI. Hmmmm.. there was no devastating war here recently. Maybe there are delusional types who will argue otherwise but lets be sane, sober, and realistic.

I've lived in Mtn Home since 1989, so that's...hold on...I'm thinking...WOW! Exactly 25 years! Boy, I think I can almost declare myself an Idahoan. But my family is British and I grew up in Louisiana around lots of other Brits so I still think I'm a little bit of a mutt. Those of you who have been around awhile may remember when I used to blog all the time. My opinions weren't very accepted and there was always an issue because I work for the county. That really wasn't fair because I NEVER blog at work! And I am still entitled to my opinions and thoughts about city and county issues, right? However, it stirred a lot of pots and those pots certainly can make a lot of noise! Since I'm a writer, I took what I wrote in my blog seriously so I spent a lot of time researching things which got exhausting to do when you're not even get a paycheck for it. So I stopped. That was a blessing to many! However, to this day, I still have people stop me and ask me why I wasn't blogging and t! hey missed it. I've missed it. Mainly because there are so many issues that come up and I have no voice except around my friends and I'm sure they are tired of it.
